the neighborhood there. all of these districts are what are considered soma mixed use districts, and generally north of harrison street where you see a lot -- on this map at least, yellows and greens, but generally mixed use and includes housing and south of harrison street where you have sli primarily housing is extremely limited only to affordable housing and then the far north east corner near fourth and tal mar you have several blocks here sso which is zoned office. the resolution the board of supervisors passed instructing the task force to under go this plan asked them to use the existing zoning as the base. it wasn't looking to necessarily reinvent the wheel or create new districts and that's what the task force came up with and the same philosophy in terms of harris street being a dividing line along with the freeway. the major changes however is that there were no longer be any mixed use districts in western soma. they will be new districts fall under eastern neighborhood mixed use districts so north of harrison street in the red primarily you have wmg for western soma and the exis
feel they are compatible uses. the incompatibility that is being discussed is coming from older buildings with no acoustic insill laigz and designed long ago. if i was a young person i would be delighted to live on 11th street and i went to clubs all the time. i think there are lots of people that would like to live in the area so what happened in 2005 after we made the changes that the night time entertainment industry was requiring of it, which i was happy to do, and then they came back and any type of housing isn't compatible with night time uses so after i redesigned the building they decided that wasn't good enough, so what i am here to say with the proper unit mix such as what we're doing, proper acoustic design, proper mechanical system design housing should be allowed on that block and we have active permit on that site and i'm not sure with down zoning now -- what happened happen with our permit? normally you're approved to whatever is in effect at the time you submitted so i'm not sure what happened happen. thank you. >>i will call a few other names. doug caldwell --

within our city contracts that the companies that do service for us do not own the data that they generate from us, that they will have a contractual obligation to share that with the city so that we can mine that to the rest of the city, that's advance of opportunities for everybody. i know at the heart of sharing this data, there is going to be a lot more jobs created, a lot more people out therein venting new ways to establish small businesses that will improve the way we live and work and play in the city. and we look forward to great events like a super bowl host or something like that, we're going to be able to give people a really rich amount of programs that they could access from here to santa clara to san jose. we can act regionally with our data and we can join and continue to be in the great city of san francisco. so, i want to thank all of the people, all of the different starting up companies here and those that are inventing with us, thank them for celebrating innovation month in such a exemplary way. and i think we're going to have a lot more to announce
of the different starting up companies here and those that are inventing with us, thank them for celebrating innovation month in such a exemplary way. and i think we're going to have a lot more to announce before this month is out, including on our way to the world series. thank you very much. (applause) >> now, if i may introduce our partner in crime here, board president david chiu who is also going to be complimenting us with all of his efforts at the board. come on up, david. (applause) >> good morning. i am incredibly excited to be here today for a couple of reasons. first of all, the hatchery is one of my favorite places in the city. there is truly a bee hive of activity of the newest innovations that san francisco will be famous for. i also love the fact that just a couple of blocks from here is where our san francisco giants are moving on to the world series. but just in this room, all of you are giants and making sure that san francisco is the world champion when it comes to innovation. >>> 13 years ago, i like all of you started a company. i started in i-ti a technology company in
space access for the city at large which really gets integrated with mixed use development sites that are identified within the waterfront land use plan, and in carrying out this planning process originally there was another advisory group that was created that recommended a plan to the port commission at the time. the port commission in 1997 approved that plan and upon approving the plan then the port also then went to work with the planning commission and the board of supervisors and mb dc to outline the policies appropriate for the waterfront with the city's planned policies for the waterfront and to align the various jurisdictions and to try to give careful and consistent focus what should be happening along that waterfront. as i mentioned there are mixed use development opportunities that are identified in the land use plan, and the bryant street opportunity area is one of those within the south beach area consisting of pier 30-32 and sea wall lot 330. during the plan process it was always seen as an opportunity to create these mix use maritime developments that brought ne
. >> and then my second question, i just wanted to clarify something or bring it to your attention, a lot of us here today work for the administration in this building which is actually is a pump station still in use that uses diesel pumps to pump the water from the ocean so it's not just a fire house, it's also us being exposed to diesel exhaust, and so with you mentioned this gal, rachel, is she the person who's not here today, or when you were talking about the air quality, having your air quality tested, and the odd thing is now a different agency runs and maintains these pumps that are right beneath us now so it gets kind of complicated, but i think i've been exposed, i worked at the airport for 11 years and then worked here, i have this exposure to diesel smell that you don't notice it here, i do notice it frequently, and so when you mention this gal rachel. >> so, just before this, we had a meeting because we're working on hopefully building a study to look at exposures among women in the fire course to understand what they're exposed to, this raises a really interesting kind of unique s
session. >> second. >> okay. >> all in favor? >> aye. >> please be advised that the ringing and use of cell phones and pagers and similar devices are prohibited at this meeting. please be advised that the chair may order the removal in the meeting room of any person using one of these electronic devices. please be advised that a member of the public has up to three minutes to make comments on each agenda item unless a shorter period is adopted on any item. first is executive port report. >> thank you we have a great agenda and happy to see so many faces. i have a few items on the executive director report. i wanted to report a couple of milestones with respect to the brandon street project. it's going on schedule. you recall it calls for june 2013 completion date, and so that is on schedule. it is a $26 million project, so we of very fortunate to have some funds come from the 2008 clean and safe neighborhood parks bond, and you recall it's located on the embarcadero and intended to be a new 57,000 square foot public open space with raised land and interpretive elements and we we
. thank you for joining us. tell us a little bit about the organization. >> we're 30 years old now. we started with 14 farmers, and it has grown out to over 80. >> what is the mission of the organization? >> this area has no grocery store spiller it is all mom-and- pop stores. we have this because it is needed. we knew it was needed. and the plaza needed somebody. it was empty. beautiful with city hall in the background. >> thank you for speaking with us. are you on the web? >> yes, hocfarmersmarket.org. >> check them out. thank you. >> welcome. the dish is ready. >> it looks and smells amazing. >> thank you. it was not easy to meet the $20 budget. i checked everybody out and found some great produce. really lovely seafood. i think that you are going to love it. >> do not be shy. cyou know this can run you $35 to $45 for a bowl, so it is great you did this for $20. >> this will feed four to six people. >> not if you invite me over for dinner. i am ready to dig in. >> i hope you'll love it. >> mmm. >> what do you think? >> i think i am going to need more. perhaps you can have all you wa
compatible and incompatible useds, and as kind of the test lab for mixed use in this city we are the first mixed use district that was established in 1990. we have a pretty good feel as to what works and what doesn't. clearly our goal is not to banish any incompatible uses. our goal is to figure out how to deal with all of them. you're going be hearing a lot more about this as the central corridor plan comes before you because at its extreme, and i might add in a rather pollyannish way, they tend to put a lot of potentially incompatible uses all together. you will have housing. you will have office. you will have pdr, and you will have night time entertainment, and when they get to discussing how they're going to make all of that work i hope you will remember the discussion that we're having today. okay. everybody loves fun. you can't be against fun, and night time entertainment is an integral part of the fabric of south of market, so let me make it very clear from the very start there was never any notion of restricting -- putting on any additional restrictions on nig
of situations in this are already legal non conforming uses and in the night time entertainment they are and they're not permitted and office in the area and it's not permitted anywhere in western soma and those two uses and everybody that exists, everybody that is legal and exists are probably non conforming uses. in terms of creating new non conforming uses there is none of that but a good one is the creation of pdr in bay view as well as other examples. >> i think the notice is just important because we get people at the last minute that who didn't realize this was going on because they didn't get a legal notice and people don't see things until they're in front of their faces anyway, and i guess the other question about the notification. okay. now you're going to have legal non conforming uses and some knew that but they were allowed to exist. is there like the eastern neighborhoods some amnecessity or process by which you are doing letters of determination? what is the process if you're existing legal non conforping office use and now we're going to be zoning you in the
torrez to join us again on stage, joaquin will be introducing the mayor and if i can ask my fellow committee members to also join us on stage. joaquin. >> thank you very much i have to say as director the mayor's oches of neighborhood services it's refreshing to have a mayor so dedicated to couldn't and it makes my job easier when our people in the community want to feel our elected efficients make our needs and it's in physical presence and i have had the great pleasure of serving under our mayor lee who i would like to make a invite to make a few remarks in honor or of arab heritage month here in san francisco. >> thank you, thank you joaquin, thank you, welcome to our orange city hall. i want to welcome everybody here this fourthth animal america arab month of separation and it's my pleasure to join us here and many of us know that we are such a lucky city, and we are lucky because people around their world make their way to fraction, find hopey until the city they know that we celebrate our diversity and find strength in the different cultures that pretend together and now
mechanism where we have - primarily a budgeting tool - asking as many people as possible to give us feedback on what we should prioritize for the remaining slice of that pie. this slide shows a few different items, things that we have done. the main thing that we have that we think is pretty cool tool for people to use is an online - we call it the "san francisco budget tzar tool." you can be the budget tzar for a day. we go to a number of committees, street festivals, different events, to promote use of the tool and get people more information about the plan and gather feedback. we have a specific, citywide community advisory committee working with us throughout the process. and also we have done advertisements and other mechanisms. these are some of the backgrounds. the tool is - a little fuzzy on the powerpoint, www.sfbudgettzar.com. what you can do with the tool, gives you the 64 billion that we have, you can go through and select the different levels of maintenance, levels of program support, and also the different projects that you feel should be incorporated. we will
correctvth it building for decades. when i was a member of the board of supervisors, all of us wondered why we hadn't done anything there and the mayor thought the same. >> if an earthquake happened, the building was uninhabitable. it sat there vacant for quite a while. the city decided to buy the building in 1999 for $2. we worked and looked at ways that we can utilize the building for an office building. to build an icon i can building that will house a lot of city departments. >> the san francisco public utilities commission has an important job. we provide clean, pristine public drinking water to 2.6 million people in the san francisco bay area from the hetch hetchy regional water system. with also generate clean renewable energy for city services like public buses, hospitals, schools, and much more. and finally, we collect and treat all the city's wastewater and stormwater making it safe enough to discharge into the san francisco bay and pacific ocean. >> in 2006 the puc was planning a record number of projects. >> the public utilities commission is a very infrastructure-rich organizat
talk to us, but we did talk to mel and his uncle, who were not included in the settlement, because they were told the contamination stopped 5 feet from their property. >> the fumes and everything, and the oil slick and the water was just gushing from the back. that's back of hess right there and it was coming directly into our backyard. i don't understand why our house is it ok, you know, but all these aren't. and we're ride behind the gas station. >> the teals say the department of the environment took samples from their house about a year ago. >> they never got back with me with any information whatsoever, so it was like we were left out in the cold. >> and left were that uneasy fuel odor. >> you don't even want to strike a match out here in the summertime, because that's how bad the fumes are. >> it can't be healthy for us. it can't be. >> state officials say the contamination has not affected the drinking water, because the homes are on public water. as for the land where those homes will be demolished, sources say it will probably turn in to some sort of public park, if the la
. that is being rolled out at education, energy, treasury, u.s. aid, other agencies as well. these programs are celebrating the use of open data and hopefully will provide some additional support. i think there are even folks here who have been part of these events. we're excited for that continued support and hope you can all join this initiative in the neutral. -- future. >> so, earlier you were talking a little about kind of how san francisco came in in terms of actually ading the officer. more broadly how do you think san francisco compares and what are some of the other cities that are doing really well in terms of open data? >> i should be clear. when san francisco is third, we have a pact. i'll add to that actually. what's great in san francisco is there is not just going to be a chief data officer. there is also the office of civic innovation. jay's team, shannon's team. by having both of those units in place i think there is going to be a really powerful team. because you can't just open up the data. you have to do things like this, where you get the community together or you have
that would be proving to be can i have cut stances. >> it is a range of issues that any of us get to deal with throughout our careers and when i first dame came in, it was the height of the movement and one was actively being gained in that movement. some people thought was no chance the soviet union would open its doors and it is a stunning celebration that more than a million juice were freed and that they are act did i havely involved including many specific moments, the symbol of the movement that poke directly. when i think about the holocaust survivors, they wanted to be sure it would perpetuate the memory of the coliseum off the am and our annual holocaust recommend are remember member he can where the mercedes benzsment and last year, there was a measure that would abandon circumstance suggestions and we were successful voice if fighting back. >> we will take a quick break, shortly we will return, please join us in a quick home. . >>> welcome back, i am eric wise and we are here with the executives director of jewish community relations council and who has been here with the jewis
understand whag is going on in the land use realm, the terminal and the projects and mission rock at one side and understand what all of these things or some of the muni routes coming fall into place. so just a sample of some of the outcomes of the workshop. we had six maps and summaries. these were they written on and saw gaps and things needed to happen. it's hard to read it but it's there and on the website and if you look on piers 30-32 you will see this but there is a list of comments so we know the transit and parking issues. that's helping us make sure as we work with engineers they're getting the input from the people that live and work about this area and the general responsibility in fixing transportation solutions, but the next steps and we're very much at the beginning of the assessment, are the workshops on december 4. one comment we heard loud and clear "give us land use information to match the transportation information" so we have maps that will be layered on top of the transportation networks so we can see where people are living and where the networks need to go and we
in developing this. so, as far as creating access to the public, using the open data sets, and creating exposure to neighborhoods that you probably traditionally didn't even think were there, we realized there were 1200 different facilities all through the park -- all through the city as we were going out to explore. and upon our own discovery, and i being a local native, i didn't know about 800 of them. so, as we move forward into the future, taking this, working with some other departments like san francisco arts, we're creating access for people, creating efficiency with the government being able to manage transactions, creating a platform for people to actually interact with the city on a level that hasn't been done before. so, ideally, using the san francisco rec and park, the future san francisco arts app, using our mobile commerce to manage that is creating jobs, revenue, and efficiency for the public and tourists to be able to navigate san francisco in a way that hasn't been done before. thank you. >> all right. (applause) >> so, we're going to show another application from motion launch
is the only park in the heart of the neighborhood. it is used daily by seniors, by children and other low income and immigrant residents from our community for exercise, recreation and community gathering. it is a space heavily used. it is important to the district, to the community and in much need of repair. while there are a few other playgrounds, there is really a great demand for more open space for this very dense neighborhood. it would benefit the health and well-being of the residents. that is why our office urges the commission to support the resolution before you, thank you. >> thank you. >> next speaker. >> president buell, commissioners, general manager ginsburg, ms. mcarthur, my name is phil chen. i'm the chair of the committee for better parks and recreation in china town. the committee is a voluntary organization that has worked with the commission of open space issues over 40 years. we starred in 1969 despite attempt business a developer to turn a playground into a garage. i'm here to speak on the proposed regulation regarding prioritis for the transbay open space impact f
for us. but i don't want to down play how important it was to play with the america's cup. we piloted and tried our hand at new things and erks lie and a project and carried hundreds of people and that is a pilot project that could have a legacy. we have the bike sharing program this spring and we work with the companies to do a proxy bike sharing program and get it place for the america's cup and valet parking and giving pedestrians real time estimates how long it goes from point a, say the ballpark to the ferry building and helping visitors orient themselves around the waterfront and this is a advantage that we have piloted and try our hand at some solutions. we had a meeting already and we wanted to make sure everybody understood the big picture. what we did before the roll your she was up part of the workshop we outlined what the assessment was supposed to do and understand the networks that serve the area. it's understanding which projects and not just transportation but which ones are coming down the pipeline and when and a lot of the challenge is understanding when the solu

to stay down actually is that that was our fred pleitgen. tell us how things have changed there. there's a new normal. >> reporter: oh, you're absolutely right. the new normal is that basically people have to live with the threat of rocket attacks the entire day. what they do is stay inside most of the day. it's interesting to see. every time people go outside they have to plan their route very carefully so they're near the vicinity of a hard shelter in skas there's another rocket attack. i can tell you this morning there's been a lot of them. i'm standing in front of those iron dome rocket intercepter batteries right now and literally about four minutes before our show it wechblt off and fired about three intercepter missiles that hit about four hamas rockets i would say about 200 yards above our head. we ourselves have been in the hardened shelter at least four time as day. so certainly it's taking a heavy toll on life. people can't get on with business. people are living in constant fear and a lot of people tell us they hope this ends soon, victor. >> let's talk about this on the bo

. what it meant was that if the government was hoping to collect more from us than it is going to spend -- that is, the government is going to run a surplus. the rest of the world is going to take more from us than it is going to spend buying our goods and services. that drives the domestic private-sector, us, into deficit. it has to. it adds up exactly. if you have a 4.5% trade deficit and a 1% budget surplus, the private-sector is going to be in deficit 5.5%. the only way you keep the private sector in the red, above zero, is if the government deficit is big enough to more than offset the trade deficit. if the u.s. is running trade deficits on the order of 4.5% of gdp, the government deficit has to be at least 4.5% of gdp, or the private sector will fall below zero. every single time. here is the cbo forecast. this is what is projected to happen to the government deficit if we hit the cliff. this is the alternative scenario. if we hit the cliff, the projection is that the government deficit will shrink to around 2% of gdp. deficits of 2% of gdp, together with trade deficits of 4.5%, i
